Lynda has volunteered or worked in the HIV field for over 20 years, initially becoming involved because of a commitment to the impact of the epidemic on people who inject drugs. Her interest quickly broadened and she has been involved in many campaigns and fights for the rights of people living with HIV over the past two decades.
Lynda has specific knowledge and interest in the impact of living with HIV for women and migrants. Lynda was formerly Director of Services at George House Trust, a highly respected HIV organisation which delivers services to people living with HIV in the North West of England.
Lynda started a PhD study in 2014 in respect of domestic abuse and people living with HIV at the School of Social Work at UCLAN: the University of Central Lancashire.
